          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1995

          About the owner: We brought up our family in this rambling waterfront comfy home with a large yard, private boat mooring and a private beach. Now that the kids have left home, we downsized but have not parted with this wonderful property.

          Why the Owner Chose Branford:
          Breathtaking views of Long Island Sound and the Thimble Islands are seen from every room. Located near Pine Orchard Yacht and Country Club which offers additional public parking and amenities for reciprocal yacht club members. Family room with wet bar and amazing views has French doors that open to a charming, covered porch. Living here makes you feel like you are on a perpetual vacation!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Since we like to drink wine and cook, we utilized our recently renovated, gourmet kitchen which features granite counters, a Viking 6 burner stove with griddle & pot filler, a pizza oven, warming drawer, additional under refrigerator and freezer, 2 dishwashers, wine fridge and ice maker. A fireplace and sitting area, breakfast nook, and butler’s pantry complete the space. A screened porch is also located off the kitchen with an outdoor grill with an additional grill in the rear of the house. The house faces south east so the sun rises each morning into most rooms of the house. During the day boats come and go from the lazy harbor to the quaint Thimble Islands. The Pine Orchard Harbor break water is a local fishing spot for sports fisherman.
